Summary: I bought this printer in 2004 and it finally has given up the ghost. I have printed thousands of images from 8x11 to 13x60 (roll-fed) without a single clogged nozzle or other problems. I'm very impressed with the performance of this printer and am hoping the R2000 replacement is even better.
Summary: This printer is the biggest ink hog I have ever seen. If you download the optional ink reserve software you can actually see your expensive inks disappear. Granted, when the printer is working properly you can get wonderful images. If you are not constantly printing, the nozzles will clog.
Summary: My printer is five years old. I use it for occasional photo printing, but mostly for 11 x 17 color drafts. The frequency of my printing can be a dozen sheets over a few days, however the printer will not be used (or turned on) for months at a time between uses.
Summary: The Epson Photo Stylus 2200 is a truly impressive photo quality inkjet printer. We recently bought a used 2200 to use in our small business for printing product pictures and custom images for retail sales on very heavy card stock. The results have been nothing short of amazing!
Summary: this is my 2nd Epson 2200. so far it's the best printer i've found for high-quality prints on matte & fine art papers. wish epson was still making them, but i'm going to use mine til they wear out, which looks like it's gonna be a long time.
Summary: The Epson 2200 set the standard for the pro-sumer photo printer. I've had one since 2003 and I still love it. I am a professional photographer, but I use the 2200 for many of my personal (as opposed to professional) projects.
Summary: It's been three years since I bought this printer; hundreds of photographs later with dozens of color cartridges spent I can honestly claim that this is one fantastic printer. I use it in La Paz, Bolivia (13,000 feet high) and I never had a problem with the printer or with the quality of the prints.
Summary: We've been using our printer for 2 yrs now w/o any issues. Its survived 3 house moves and extended 105F heat. No clogging, no breakdowns. The paper roll attachment is particularly clever and saves lots of money on paper. But this is a professional printer for serious photographers.
Great output, but a real hassle and poor durability

Summary: I bought this printer for professional/scientific images. When it prints, it produces the best images I have ever seen. Further, the color IS very stable, even in bright light. However, the printer is a real hassle to operate, especially if you use it infrequently and have to suffer its quirks...
Summary: The color and quality are fine. Problem is if you do not use the printer often, you will need to keep cleaning the heads and wasting ink. Also while the roll paper is nice feature the paper curl seems almost impossible to remove.
